Cataratas do Iguaçu [kataˈɾatɐs du iɡwaˈsu]) are waterfalls of the Iguazu River on the border of the Argentine provinceof Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná. Together, they make up the largest waterfall system in the world.
The name "Iguazú" comes from the Guarani or Tupi words "y" [ɨ], meaning "water", and "ûasú "[waˈsu], meaning "big". Legend has it that a deity planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In a rage, the deity sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
BRAZIL ART - SAUDADE
10% goes towards a Reforestation Project in Brazil
"Saudade" is a show inspired by the artist’s home country: Brazil. For this show, Fer has decided to share the beauty of Brazil in all its bold colors and vibrant energy. The art was displayed in September 2019, at the Lowcountry Artists Gallery.
The word “Saudade” is a unique Portuguese word with no direct translation in any other language. In Portuguese, it’s translated as the feeling of missing or longing for something one is fond of.
